CSGA Town Halls Announced

The Canadian Seed Growers’ Association has announced 13 virtual town hall meetings. Seed growers are invited to attend for an overview of the ratification package and an opportunity to ask questions.

Each town hall is approximately 90 minutes, with the majority of the time allocated to live questions and answers. Please come prepared with your questions! The number of participants will be restricted on each town hall. To allow as many CSGA members to attend, please limit your participation to one or two sessions.
